I have learned it’s better to listen more, think a lot and speak when needed. Many people talk without thinking and inadvertently hurt others in the process.
Also enjoy each day for what it is – a precious time. When faced with the prospect of not surviving cancer suddenly the sky seems bluer and the trees are greener. You think about the things that are most important to you – like your family.
I am nearly 10 years post cancer and know that every day is a bonus.
